Re: Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Andre Fisher

This is a strange issue. This only happens for me when I cancel the
dialog that loads the text accessibly.

This is the book I'm trying to read. The text is accessible with jaws, and
when selecting "infer reading order", then it is possible to access and read
it with NVDA. I can read the menus of acrobat reader, but not the text.
This text, in particular, is not an image PDF file and it does not need OCR
or any kind of conversion.

Hi Afrim,
If possible, and if it does not infringe on confidentiality or copyright (do
ensure that), then, it would be really helpful if you could share a sample
file as one of those PDFs you receive from your professors. Practical
examination and analysis of those PDF files by members may result in more
accurate suggestions.

I am using Windows 7 with Acrobat Reader DC and NVDA 2016.01 works
perfectly well. Have you configured the Accessibility features of
Acrobat for screen readers? Can you not access the acrobat menus?
Is the document you are trying to read an image or is it text?

Subject: [nvda] Cannot read PDF documents with NVDA

Hello everyone,
I have seriously started using NVDA, and this time is more serious
than other times, because I have upgraded to windows 10, and it works
very well, and I do mean very very well. One of my biggest issues I'm
currently facing is reading pdf documents with NVDA. On the adobe
reader, or adobe acrobat reader, NVDA reads absolutely nothing. I
have to work everyday with those types of documents because my
university professors provide me with lectures or books in pdf
format, but I cannot access them.
So, could somebody help me with this problem because it is very
important to me. Every answer is appreciated.
